Numi Foundation

We created Numi Foundation with the vision of a world where all basic human needs are met and people have the resources to fulfill their greatest potential.

COVID-19 Food Relief

54 million Americans faced food insecurity as a direct result of COVID-19. With our local partners OUSD, Growing Together, Mandela Partners, Sanzuma, and SEI, we delivered over 637,000 pounds of fresh, organic, culturally relevant produce to 6,000 high-need families. These families included 1,841 low-income seniors in the Bay Area.

Numi Curriculum

Designed with professional curriculum developers, the NUMI Curriculum brings Gardening, Art, and Social Studies to children at Title 1 Oakland Unified elementary schools. All three focus areas meet California’s common core standards and were developed with the belief that by nurturing creativity and imagination, children develop self-awareness, confidence, and the ability to visualize new possibilities.

Together for H20PE

What’s tea without water? While we enjoy this benefit, 844 million people around the world lack access to clean, safe drinking water. We’ve partnered with our global farming communities to ensure access by building or repairing water and sewage infrastructure and administering community-led education. Together for H2OPE is a unique program because it’s led by the farmers and their communities, with long-term plans to maintain water access for future generations.

Iraq Summer School

In partnership with the Iraq Foundation, Numi Foundation was honored to provide summer school education in the birthplace of Numi’s founders–Baghdad, Iraq. This program supported sixth-grade Iraqi students at risk of dropping out of school, many of whom are orphans and war victims, with a school curriculum focusing on English, Math, Science, and Art.
